CUNA Mutual Storms close CUs in four states
MADISON, Wis. (6/13/08)--Credit unions in four states are closed due to flooding from last weekend's storms, CUNA Mutual Group said Thursday. "We are aware of credit unions across Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Indiana that are closed due to flooding," said Phil Tschudy, media relations manager at CUNA Mutual. "Some have sustained water damage; however, none have reported any significant damages to CUNA Mutual at this time," Tschudy told News Now. Credit unions with damage claims can contact CUNA Mutual's Disaster Response Claims at 800-637-2676, which is available 24/7/365. News Now also checked with several leagues. Most reported they had not received reports of the storms' impact on credit unions in their state. See related stories for reports on credit unions in Iowa and Wisconsin. "I spoke with field staff and credit unions in the Quad Cities area (on the Illinois side) and southeast Illinois along the Indiana border," said Will Willie, public relations coordinator at the Illinois Credit Union League. He added there had been "no reports of impact on our credit unions so far." The Kansas Credit Union Association (KCUA) reported that it had not received reports of credit unions with damage. "There was a tornado in Manhattan last evening (Wednesday), but the credit union reported that it sustained no damage," said Ashley Bridgeman, communications specialist at KCUA. The credit union was open for business Thursday. The Midwest's plight likely will worsen. A line of severe thunderstorms moved across the area again Thursday, emptying more water on many areas already flooded or at the brink of flooding.
